Yes, that line really spoke to me too..."Reaching for the painful thought..." I have realized I do that alot - regarding old loves - and just have to STOP IT!!


These quotes that I have written on the edge of my notebook called out as I was reading your post.
Writing is a solitary occupation. Family, friends, and society are the natural enemies of the writer. He must be alone, uninterrupted, and slightly savage if he is to sustain and complete an undertaking.
Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is the richness of self.

BTW - thanks for the post... It brought clarity to some things that seemed murky as I went through Artist Way


wow-- you and I share the same path to release-- a cigarette and a trip to an antiques shop--- too funny. It DOES make me feel special---


So many issues are unearthed in this chapter, especially for those of us who have clung to workaholism to our own hurt and almost demise, only to realize we had bought into the ie that we were our work (even if we preached the opposite message). It's a long, long process to recover the truth - but sometimes illness delivers our own redemption. I'm sorry for whatever you are suffering; I'm speaking of myself only.
